PRODUCTION BEGINS ON COFFEE TABLE BOOK FOR THE COOK ISLANDS

No sooner have we finished printing our coffee table book on Papua New Guinea (due to hit port any minute), than a request comes in to print a similar book on the Cook Islands.

And, I’m delighted. It’s one of my strongest destination galleries, and I think it will be a particularly popular publication.

Interestingly, I posted four cover concepts on my Instagram feed (www.instagram.com/davidkirklandphotography), asking followers to choose the one they liked. The request received the highest number of comments I’ve ever attracted, with this cover (above), resoundingly, the favourite.

We’re now flat-out ensuring the 150 page hard-cover book will be available for Christmas. It will be distributed exclusively by The Cook Islands Trading Corporation.

Otherwise, after three weeks with my publishing hat on, I shed the shackles of production and head for the Cook Islands on assignment tomorrow, shooting for Pacific Resorts (….during which I’m just a little bit hopeful I’ll end up with a couple of new images to squeeze into the publication before it heads to the printers😉).
